FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW31

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW31 The bare necessities… A relatively successful week, but one that somehow felt it should have been so much more… Our decision to captain Salah over Vardy cost us 11 valuable points, but we are at least grateful that we brought the latter in at all after his 16 point haul. Our score of 56 was alright – it was better than the average of 48 and saw us achieve the smallest of green arrows, for the second week in a row, to rest at 29, 423rd. However, its a win and we’ll always take a win. When it is stripped down, 48 of the 56 points came from just five of the players, with new recruit Vardy leading the party, while Hazard & Jimenez topped up our score late on with a goal apiece. Our 5-a-side team was made up of assisters Digne and Cap...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW30

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW30 Paying the penalty… The upside to selecting penalty takers is obvious, the downside is a -2 if they ever miss one. To have one do so is bad luck, to have two doing so leaves you looking around for dead black cats in your rear view mirror. Twice. Pogba and Aubameyang combined for a -2 for us, not quite what you expect for a near combined £19m outlay and 20% of your FPL budget! The fact that we had 14 points sat on the bench doesn’t help matters but the rest pulled together to somehow get us 51 and a green arrow. Albeit a small one, we moved up about 6k to land in 30,118th position. Feels a bit like we are treading water but with all the chips to come we are still hopeful that we are well poised for a strong finish. Jimenez and Hazard were ou...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW29

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW29 No Kun do… When the week begins with the ever consistent Jimenez blanking against bottom club Huddersfield and then Doherty conceding a clean sheet in the dying minutes you could be forgiven for thinking it would be another one of those weeks. The truth is, it very nearly was. It took another attacking full back to pull us back from the brink really, as TAA weighed in with an unusual hat-trick of assists, a clean sheet and full bonus points for an unexpected haul of 18. Just as well really as the rest of them were a bit lacklustre. Digne got us a clean sheet, spoiled by an inevitable yellow, idiot that he is. Shaw and Pogba both chipped in with assists and Aubameyang got us a goal but it wasn’t quite the haul we were hoping for, especially ...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW28

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW28 Ashley does Dallas… We’ve had indifferent game-week’s, we’ve had bad game-week’s and then we’ve had this game-week. A thought probably shared by a good many. We began with the faint hope of having a solid 11 plus a possible sub, and ended up with 9. A thought probably shared by a good many. We began with a seemingly solid captain choice, he came home with 4 points, we didn’t even answer the door. A thought probably shared by a good many. We did manage to cobble together a hat-trick of sorts, we got a full set; a clean sheet, an assist and a goal. That’d be news if it was from one player, unfortunately it wasn’t, it was between the whole sorry lot of them. Well, the ones who actually bothered to play...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW25

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW25 Eddie Howe is a LIAR! A strange old midweek campaign for us which saw us end up with only 10 players and even one of those made the briefest of brief cameos We scraped in at 46, a meagre 4 above the overall average and yet we still grabbed our 6th green arrow in a row and a small rise up in the rankings by just over a thousand spots to land in 31,076th, yet another season high. Jimenez and Aubameyang led the way with 12 points each, Pogba and Doherty also pulled their weight with 7 and 6 respectively. After that it was all downhill, Captain Salah let us (and the vast majority) down with a rare blank and the less said about Shaw, Wan-B and Sane the better really. Although we do reserve special mentions for Digne and Callum Wilson, or more notably Eddie ...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW24

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW24 Who said FPL is a squad game? We played 5-a-side FPL in GW24 and returned 70pts. Well, to explain ourselves properly our 5 superstars contributed 64 of our 70pts with Captain Salah leading the way with 30pts, Sane 12, Wilson 9, Pogba 8 and Jimenez 5. The less said about the other 6 numptys the better, especially Digne who scored an own goal from 25 yards for a -1 payback. Our 70pt total sees our team of misfits record a 5th consecutive green arrow and sees us show us a global rank of 32,227, which is a season best so far. Last week’s result… This week’s transfer decision… We have 1 FT, a healthy balance of £1.7m to burn, and more avenues to pursue than… some weirdo who pursues avenues. Our avenues include the return of (th...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW23

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW23 Another decent week here, and yet again also one that could have been so much better; but for some fine margin decisions this week in both team & bench selection, and some much wider ones in weeks previous. To have Shaw with his 8 points sat behind Camarasa on the bench is gutting. To have Rashford not even in the squad, having owned him a few weeks back is baffling, but more on that later! As for those who we did bother to pick Fabianski (9) and Digne (12) did us proud, and Wan-B did us even prouder with his simple 4 points… 3 of them somehow coming in the form of bonus points despite conceding 2 goals in a defeat, go figure, Superman he truly is. Captain Salah carried the can for our mids and forwards with a contribution of 22. It’s ...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW22

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW22 Oh what could have been… It’s fair to say we have mixed feelings this week; we sold Rashford (12 points) and Sane (10 points) and bought Wilson (6 points) and Pogba (3 points). Well ok, we say mixed…! It is actually mixed though as we didn’t drop off a cliff as a result, voluntarily or otherwise, we did somehow manage to still grab a green arrow, albeit not as big a one as we would have, had we simply overslept on New Year’s Day, or something similarly convenient. Someone please remind us next year to simply get blind drunk and forget the team! As it was we somehow scraped through with 63 points, with only really Kane (c) on 24 and Son with 13 pulling any weight. Wilson did get that 6 and the much derided Shaw got 5, the r...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW21

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW21 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW21. Two Salah’s would just be greedy… What a lovely, gracious lad he is, giving his team-mate the chance to complete his hat-trick. Some said. Others, ones who perhaps captained him, for example, used different words… Mo’s ‘generosity’ was probably a 10 point swing, perhaps even 12 if you factor in him possibly taking an extra bonus point, but we aren’t bitter… far from it, we are furious! we are ‘Claudio Ranieri’ furious. Despite his errant ways Mo helped us along to 68 points this week, leading the way with 24. If we’d told you beforehand that Kane, Son and Jimenez would get 2 goals, an assist and 4 bonus points between them you’d...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW20

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW20 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW20. The trouble with a wildcard team is often not who you bought; rather who you didn’t. There’s always those regrets, swept aside on to the floor of the ‘drawing-board’ room. Not so much the ones who catch your eye when you walk around afterwards wistfully kicking up the dust, seeing names like Wilson, Alli or Aubameyang peek through the remnants, more the ones like Felipe Anderson and Hazard, who still seem to sparkle through it, almost winking at you in mock disgust of what could have been that week. But alas, we couldn’t have everyone we wanted. If we did we’d have had a midfield of epic proportions… but the last time we checked 1-8-1 wasn’t a valid formation. All...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW19

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW19 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW19. Sergio took to the boards this week and he couldn’t have put it any better; “Nightmare gameweek for the site team “. It may have been his sole contribution this week but at least he was 100% accurate with it! 45 points saw us with 10 less than the overall average. Kane got us a third of our overall points with his 15, the rest averaged 3 each. Enough said. Overall it saw us plunge back down 25,000 odd places to finish in 84,654th. Last week’s result in full… We go into GW19 with 1 free transfer and a more than healthy bank balance of £3.2m, but with a wildcard to swing at our issues could this finally be the week….? This weeks transfer decision(s) Yes, in short! T...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW18

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW18 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW18. There’ll be no fancy poems here. Or 12 days of nonsense, no lovey dovey Christmas puns and no general glad handing. Why? Well firstly because it’s bidness time. It’s time to get your heads out of Christmas and get back to the things that matter most – FPL. Secondly, because your Site Team panel here aren’t all young, foot loose and fancy free like your previous writers this week. Au contraire, they’re a bunch of long in the tooth, hard bitten grumps who’ve probably stood in one more long Christmas queue than is healthy for any man, especially knowing that they are about to lavish a month’s wages on gifts that will be discarded by New Year. And all in e...[Read More]
